Open-E JovianDSS’ Data Storage Solutions for the Educational Sector

Establish your IT infrastructure based on a proven and cost-effective data storage system chosen by dozens of academic and educational institutions around the world.

Open-E Data Storage Solutions for Education

Educational institutions require more and more advanced IT solutions to address the challenges that they face in modern-day society. Some of these challenges, such as, storing big volumes of data, extensive databases that need to be protected against data loss as well as ransomware attacks, and having thousands of users that need to have access to the IT systems, are vital issues that IT administrators need to solve.

With Open-E JovianDSS data storage, you can address all these problems with just one solution.

Database Optimized Storage

Storage database optimization includes maximizing the speed and efficiency of data retrieval. Open-E JovianDSS is a comprehensive solution, offering multiple methods of optimizing system performance tailored to specific sector requirements. Through meticulous tuning and configuration, it provides organizations with optimal storage infrastructure performance. This flexibility ensures that database workloads operate at peak performance, providing fast access to critical data while maximizing resource utilization. 

  • Optimization for high CPU and high disk performance
  • Proper iSCSI tuning
  • 2-way or 4-way mirroring that ensures optimal performance
  • Multi-Path IO usage for the client network 
  • A few or a dozen volumes/shares instead of one (performance optimization)
  • SAN protocols rather than NAS protocols (for lower latency and better performance)

Tailored to Educational Sector

Multiple User Access

Educational institutions have many workstations that require uninterrupted system access. The storage system has to cope with a huge and continuous workload from different connection protocols and heterogeneous sources, such as Windows, Mac and others. That's sometimes thousands of workstations accessing the system daily using LDAP, iSCSI and SMB protocols to transfer data from one machine to another. Often, user access management (ACL) is also required to ensure data and infrastructure security.


On- & Off-Site Data Protection

To keep the data infrastructure of the educational institution secure, it’s recommended that the institution diversifies its data protection approaches. One of the ways to do that is for the institution to build a data storage node that replicates the data and/or keeps backups on-site and to also have one off-site, ready to restore the data if the primary location has been affected by a disaster. In regards to ransomware, a big issue for educational institutions these days, the data will be simply restored from the locally or remotely accessed data snapshots that were last taken before the attack.


Educational institutions often face a dilemma because they would like to provide their students with the latest IT solutions that are available on the market, while, at the same time having to work with a limited budget. Open-E Jovian DSS offers a compelling answer, aligning top-notch technology, empowering schools and universities to deliver seamless access to multimedia resources with cost efficiency. By leveraging Open-E Jovian DSS, institutions can optimize their IT infrastructure, ensuring reliable data storage while maximizing resource allocation.
